over the nomination of chuck hagel for defense secretary. it has now been delayed for another week, that vote. $8.5 billion of automatic spending cuts scheduled to take effect in two weeks' time if no agreement is reached. we have it all covered this morning and we want to start with a view from the white house. in washington, the job of white house chief of staff is known as the most powerful post in town and there is a new man occupying that seat of power and he is here with us this morning on "meet the press," his first appearance. but who he? how did he get here? denis mcdonough is one of 11 kids and qualification enough in a small town in minnesota. he was a high school football star. he cut his teeth in politics and working in the house for congressman lee hamilton and in the senate for majority leader tom daschle and later for barack obama. when he decided to make a run for the white house in 2008 he tapped mcdonough to be his foreign policy adviser to the campaign. the president announced him as his pick, mcdonough involved in every major foreign policy decision, including
of these agenda items. first of all, chuck hagel's nomination, it is being held up, the expectation, he will ultimately be confirmed. but bill cullen, former defense secretary, this week said something to politico that caught my attention that underlines the problem hagel has, that will put him in a a difficult position once he gets there. those resentments will weigh around. i think it's tragic what is happening and i think it's shameful. if he is confirmed, is he a weaker defense secretary and is that something that weighs on the president's mind? >> no, he is not going to be a weaker defense secretary. he will be a great defense secretary. he is a leading republican senator. he has always done the hard stuff and made it look easy frankly. >> mccain will be coming up in a couple of minutes saying frankly republicans don't like him. i had an opportunity to talk to senator mccain about this. several other republicans are uncomfortable how this has played out and why i think senator mccain and others say they intend to vote to end this filibuster as soon as they get back from the recess.
on this program, the man leading the charge against hagel. former presented and -- former friend and colleague, senator john mccain try to get straight talk on what is ahead for hagel. plus our round table looks at what is at stake in the hagel fight and the obama agenda as the president squares off against an eternally divided gop. we will hear from the following. it's all coming up next. i know what you're thinking... transit fares! as in the 37 billion transit fares we help collect each year. no? oh, right. you're thinking of the 1.6 million daily customer care interactions xerox handles. or the 900 million health insurance claims we process. so, it's no surprise to you that companies depend on today's xerox for services that simplify how work gets done. which is...pretty much what we've always stood for. with xerox, you're ready for real business. which is...pretty much what we've always stood for. >>> pog issued an emotional plea during his states of the union this week, for congress to act on new gun control ( lin slaying. >> gabby give zpooersd was a vote. the families of newton down de
. all you have to do is look at the chuck hagel situation in the senate to see just how bad everything is right now. but i want you to imagine liberals, just imagine what it would be like if we had 60 senators like this. >> i'm really concerned that too big to fail has become too big for trial. that just seems wrong to me. >> it sure does. newly elected senator from massachusetts elizabeth warren is doing what she promised to do. she is ready to lead the way on accountability for the financial industry, and for good reason. you see, the federal reserve says the 2008 financial collapse cost this country 38.8% of its net worth. despite the massive fraud and recklessness of the banks, the number of executives prosecuted for this crisis zero. before today, there is no accountability. now, the frank/dodd financial regulation bill was watered down and not fully implemented. senator warren used her first banking committee hearing to take on the regulators who were supposed to be enforcing the laws. instead, they take some money and turned a blind eye. >> i know there have been some landmark s

" with some great stuff lately. republicans ugly and shameful. chuck hagel filibuster. republicans have doubled down with their shameful filibuster of secretary of defense chuck hagel. add to this fresh insult of rand paul to put a hold on john brennan. looks like republicans are backing a cynical strategy that could compromise national security while proliferating partisanship. let's put it this perspective. republicans decided to filibuster a republican secretary of defense nominee. someone mitch mcconnell once called one of the most respected foreign policy. someone john mccain said would be an excellent secretary of state in his administration. it's fictional one. avalon writes this bitter confirmation fight is sadly ironic because picking a member of the opposite party usually an olive branch. remember how that would be seen as outreach? no longer. the abuse of a filibuster to delay or block the confirmation of the secretary of defense raises questions about filibuster reform because if a senator had to hold the floor and risk his bladder like jimmy stewart in "mr. smith goes to wa

biofuel drones to a green fleet, i expect similar policies to continue from chuck hagel when he is confirmed hopefully next week. for these reasons, i have been a long supporter of renewable fuels. i encourage the development of an industry that is important to our national security and does well as to our economy. whether we are talking food or water or energy security, in the future, more crops in the field can mean fewer soldiers in the field. at the same time, as important as the defense capabilities are , we need to rebalance toward the other three d's. we spend more on defense than on diplomacy, democracy, and development altogether. meanwhile, china has more than doubled its investments in developing new agricultural technologies. those of the kinds of farsighted policies that enable china emerge as a world power and which we need to get back to. as we shift our focus on resources toward a smarter and more constructive form of international interaction, it is radical that food security remain at the center of shaping -- it is critical that food security remain at the cent
